In our continuing cooperation with PASAI on IDI-PASAI Financial Statements of Governments (FSG) Audit Initiative, SAIs of Fiji, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, and Vanuatu signed an MoU with PASAI and IDI.
The support under this initiative covers ISSAI Implementation Needs Assessment for Financial Audit, and to audit of Financial Statements of Governments following ISSAIs. A week-long workshop which was the beginning of this support was delivered to a total of 43 participants. Owing to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the support for needs assessments and audits will be provided mostly online through a virtual workspace. IDI and PASAI jointly created this workspace, which is hosted on PASAI Learning Management System (LMS).
The support to SAIs of Tuvalu and Solomon Islands commenced in 2020 and is currently ongoing. The support to SAIs of Samoa and Tonga will commence from October 2021 making a total of eight SAIs participating in this initiative.
